Have you ever met a person that constantly seems to be working towards his or her goals? Do you have friends or family members that are able to achieve personal and professional growth while still juggling all the challenges and day-to-day tasks they have to complete?
If you have, and most of us do experience these people in our lives, you are in the presence of a person who has learned to harness the power of personal motivation and use it to their advantage.
This is actually something that anyone can bring into his or her life. Adding positive habits that create intrinsic (think internal or personal) motivation is not at all difficult, but you have to learn what motivates you in your business and in your personal life.
Set Goals Based on What You Want
Too many people get stuck in negative thinking and fail to turn it around to create a positive goal. For example, if you want to boost your sales setting aside 10 minutes per day to make cold calls is a positive option. Saying to yourself that you won’t waste time anymore is not positive nor motivational.
Setting the schedule for your sales day and checking it off as you complete the tasks is motivational for many and also a very positive way to make changes. Being recognized for increased sales or generating more qualified leads can create extrinsic or external rewards that boost the motivation factor.
The same is true in personal life. If you want to have a better relationship with your spouse, setting out what you want to do and breaking it down into steps or goals is going to provide to create a habit of thinking about positive interactions with your partner. There is power in positive motivational habits so make sure that your goals are set in a way that helps you create positive motivational habits.
By focusing on what you want, setting goals and mini-goals and getting to know what motivates you personally you can continue to add positive habits in your life that lead to success in life and business.
